I have two partitions on my 1TB hard drive. The first one (about 550 GB) has Ubuntu 18.04 installed, and the other one (about 400 GB) has Windows 10.
sudo fdisk -l
Device Boot Start End Sectors Size Id Type /dev/sda1 * 2048 1126399 1124352 549M 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT /dev/sda2 1126400 820979711 819853312 391G 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT /dev/sda3 820981758 1953523711 1132541954 540G 5 Extended /dev/sda5 820981760 1937899728 1116917969 532,6G 83 Linux /dev/sda6 1937901568 1953523711 15622144 7,5G 82 Linux swap / Solaris
So, that means in
/dev/sda2 I have my Windows and it is in exFAT format.
https://www.howtogeek.com/235596/whats-the-difference-between-fat32-exfat-and-ntfs/ I have to install additional packages to be able to read files from that (
/dev/sda2) partition via Linux.
And, according to https://www.howtogeek.com/235655/how-to-mount-and-use-an-exfat-drive-on-linux/ I would have to install exfat-fuse and exfat-utils in order to access these files from Ubuntu.
dpkg -l | grep fat
returns nothing so that means I haven't these packages installed on my Linux.
The question is: How is it possible I can read files from my Windows partition via Nautilus while I haven't these requested additional packages installed? Also, I don't realize why I can access and read it via Nautilus, but not from Terminal?
/dev/sda2: Not a directory
